Cityscape “Windy City Rain”
Here’s an image that I took from the John Hancock Center’s 360 observation deck in Chicago, Illinois. This is the best location to capture a bird’s eye view of the city! I made my way up the tower one gloomy evening hoping to photograph something interesting. As luck would have it, the rain started immediately after I set up my camera. I actually love shooting cityscapes in the rain but I had to move quickly as the glass was starting to fog up and accumulate these tiny little speckles. I decide to switch out my lens to my 70-200 to get a nice misty/moody shot of the streets below. It was a race against the clock, but I did manage to snap a few interesting photos before my view was completely gone. That’s what I love about photography, you never know what will happen next! It always keeps you guessing! For the edit, I decided to use my Lightroom Film Presets. Check out my film emulation gallery here.
